Birding in the US and Abroad

It’s easy to begin birdwatching in your own backyard and while traveling.  The Internet provides a lot of resources to get you started. The most basic equipment for spotting and appreciating birds is a good pair of binoculars, a notepad, and an identification guidebook. 

Reporting Banded Shorebirds

Scientists have banded tens of thousands of shorebirds since the mid 1990’s -- mostly red knots, semipalmated sandpipers, ruddy turnstones, and sanderlings -- resulting in a growing database of sightings along the Atlantic Flyway describing their migration routes, nesting and wintering areas. Your observations will contribute greatly to this important information.

Hummingbird Gardens

When selecting herbs and plants for your hummingbird garden, it’s important to diversify your choices and consider the ease of planting and maintenance, early or long blooming periods and attractiveness of foliage. With careful planning, you will be awarded later with happy hummers throughout your garden.
